Are you running Ubuntu 10.04 or Ubuntu 10.10? This matters because 10.10 is not an LTS release, and is end-of-life (i.e., no longer supported), so you would have to change your configuration to update from old-releases software sources (and would be well advised to upgrade to 11.04 once you've done so). – Eliah Kagan Jun 30 '12 at 19:24

You should know 3 commands for your Terminal:

  sudo apt-get update
  sudo apt-get upgrade
  sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

This should work ;)
